Capcom has released a new trailer for the upcoming remake of Resident Evil 3, and it provides the best look yet at the new version of the iconic, terrifying antagonist Nemesis. While much of what was in the design from the original video game, Resident Evil 3: Nemesis, remains, the character has seen a fairly significant upgrade, and in addition to a new nose, it seems to sport more deadly weapons than before.
In the trailer, which you can watch above, Nemesis can be seen chasing down S.T.A.R.S. team member Jill Valentine with the intention of wiping her and all other S.T.A.R.S. members out. The character can been seen wielding a wild-looking flamethrower as well as a rocket launcher in new images released alongside the trailer. You can check out a new render of Nemesis below:
Here’s how Capcom describes Nemesis in its blog post on the new trailer:
“Long-time fans of the original game need no introduction to what Nemesis is, but those of you who took your first trip to Raccoon City with last year’s Resident Evil 2 may be more familiar with the Bio Organic Weapon (B.O.W.) that Nemesis is based off of: Tyrant, otherwise known as Mr. X. While Tyrant was sent in by the Umbrella Corporation to eradicate any survivors left in Raccoon City, Nemesis serves a more focused role. Its singular mission is to eliminate any members of the dwindling S.T.A.R.S. team still in the city, and that includes Jill Valentine.”
